So far I’ve replaced the 2x 10,000uF caps in the 5500 amplifier, and most of the big caps in the 5500 CD player. The 4700uF I ordered was too tall for the CD player PCB to close down again ( doh!! ) so will have to order a shorter one.

 

The 5500 TT parts are here, will take a stab at it later today.

 

At least I have music now 🙂 the CD player is running, I’m curious if it’ll get warm like before. I need to order a belt for the 5500 tape deck, too. Motor spins but I assume the drawer belt has stretched/dried out, as it won’t grip.

 

Thanks again, for all the help!
